Itinerary:

The terrain is variable, rocky in places. The distance is 50 km.

On this event we'll join up with the Toronto Bruce Trail Club to participate in their one day End-to-End of the Toronto section of the Bruce Trail, in the Halton Hills, from Terra Cotta to the Hilton Falls Conservation Area. We'll meet up with the other participants at Hilton Falls Conservation Area at 6:00 am, and leave our cars at the parking lot. The BT club will arrange for a bus leaving at 6AM that will take us to the start of the hike, and we'll hike back at our own pace the 50km to our cars. Those making the full distance will receive a badge. Every 7-10 kilometers along the way, we'll pass a checkpoint where we can replenish water, enjoy refreshments provided by our hosts, and if necessary, drop off.

Note that we have to leave from Downsview no later than 5:00AM so we have enough time to arrive at the meeting place on time, and get ourselves ready ie. hiking shoes, sunscreen etc. This is before the subways open. We may be able to help with arranging sharing of cabs or rides.

This event is suitable for advanced hikers only, and is restricted to regular D5 hikers.
